  • 1998 Acura NSX Project

    Well, my Car PC is finally done! Actually, it's been done for about a few weeks now, but I haven't had time to post. I wanted to first start off and say thank you to leemik, for introducing Car PC's to me and all the info/help he's given to me. is by far the premier place to not only purchase all the things needed to get almost any project complete, but also the best source of info as the members here are not only friendly and knowledgable, but very consistant in getting timely responses.

    Now on the the project.....

    Operating System - Windows XP Pro
    PC - Xenarc SC3 PC
    Processor - Intel Pentium 4 2.0ghz 478 pin
    RAM - 512MB (x2) PC3200 DDR400 184 pin Ultra Low Profile 0.8 inch
    Hard Drive - Hitachi Travelstar 2.5inch 80GB
    Power Supply Unit - Carnetix CNX-P2140 185w
    Monitor - Dynamix 816 8inch Touchscreen
    Sound Card - Creative Xmod
    GPS Antenna - GlobalSat BU-353
    Modem - Sierra Wireless 595U USB Modem / Sprint Broadband
    Optical Drive - Panasonic UJ-845-B Slot-In 8X DVD±RW/RAM Drive

    iGuidance 3.0 Navigation
    Digimoto OBD2 Diagnostics
    Power DVD Player
    Road Runner Front End
    WinAmp 2.95 Media Player
    BlackBerry Manager Mobile Modem

    Monster Cable THX Mini Jack to RCA Cables
    Gigaware 7 port USB Hub
    Targus 4 port USB Hub
    USA Spec Auxilary Input Converter
    Mini USB Keyboard
    Touchpad Mouse

    I don't have a lot of pics of the actual install, I may have a few pics on my phone of everything torn apart, but this is the most likely final placement of the components.

    I will also be fiberglassing the center console to have the USB Hub flushed in there.

      ACK! One of my favorite cars and I am completely envious of you.

      I saw this one down in Venice, Florida in really good condition for sale but obviously I don't have the money.

      Soon to come 2008 WRX 5-door Mac-carputer.

              you're in boston? i'm right in Chelmsford, about 20 minutes from Boston... i was there today for the walk for hunger actually and nah, i didn't get many pics, my girlfriend was sorta bein... annoyed at me, so we rushed through there and basically just talked/walked most of the time, then my friend got pics and said he was done, so we headed out

              LOL, and one of the only reasons why i thought you were from MA was because of the inspection sticker placement stupid reason because alot of states do that, but it just seemed... fitting

                      The P4 seems to be working fine right now. It hasnt gotten that hot around here yet, so we shall see.

                        My Blackberry couldn't handle what I wanted for Interet service, so I just upgraded to a Sprint Broadband service and Sierra Wireless Aircard 595U USB Modem.

                        Should have upgraded to this when I first got this service. Works GREAT!

                              wow, really nice ride & install, big props

                              aside from loosing the p4, the only thing I would change is that "honda navigation system" under the screen... just an opinion really, no offence at all, just that would drive me nuts

                              really nice, good luck with it
                              MY NEWEST INSTALL:modded infiniti fx with big screen

                              first windows carpc liquid cooled LVDS screen :D
